holy cow, i did hear last night from a very reliable source that Disney was raising the prices of the already rediculious packages that they try to make every team purchase. maybe FIRST has finally decided to dump disney and go with a more financially suitable venue. i think this is could be a positive. we'll just have to wait and see.

Okay, okay, I'll spill the beans.

The championshps are being held in my barn as soon as certain Members of teams 151 and 237 get up here and take out all of the old tools and metal junk they want.

Accomodation will be B.Y.O.T. (Bring your own tent). Teams will be assigned camping areas devided evenly over the ten acre wooded area.

Please! no defecating in the stream!


Oh yeah, bring lots of bug repellant.

I would but I have no idea how to get to your barn. PM your Address to me and then I'll be there with a huge trailer and take it all away.

Eeep! Could it really be the end of the FIRST/Epcot love affair? Dare we hope...? Not like it matters to me. Only way i'll end up at nats this year is if they decide to have them at Disneyland instead.

Unhappy

Nate,

Thanks for that update..... to bad it's not good news. As a team that has to travel across the nation to get to Florida we were hoping for a date today, not a possible relocation, so we could make travel arrangements.

With offical sign ups for your 1st regional and the championship event starting Tuesday (thats four days from now)hopefully it will be resolved soon.

Its hard to get the school district to approve taking students to an undisclosed location, at a undecided date.

Will be watching all weekend for updates.....

Maybe they're moving us to the Magic Kingdom?

I'd be really surprised if things with Disney went south (rimshot?), but it's not outside the realm of possibility. Is Greg Hale working between Disney and FIRST still, or was he 'promoted' out of that position?

In the end, though, I think losing Disney wouldn't be a very good thing for FIRST, at all, ever. Yes, I'm biased, but that's not why I'm saying that.

I hope things get worked out. If they want to raise the prices of the package, that's okay, I guess, but maybe they can make other provisions that'll allow for flexibility in team travel arrangements.

Holy cow, thats crazy. I hope they find some other place to do it which is just as entertaining though. Although it being held in some isolated place would eliminate the motivation for students to work just for the trip, it just wouldn't be fun. Aside from that, where could it possibly be held? I'm at a loss for ideas besides Disney Land. I mean, theres really no place else in the us that could be equivalent to Disney World. It's Disney World!

@!#@!#@!#@!#....If they're going to raise the price of the package that really sucks for us with budget cuts and all....

Ive been told multiple times that Disneyland in California does not have the capacity to hold that many people and they dont have a venue that was as good as epcot...
